Banana Stand Media has hosted live shows by many of Portland's best bands at their house-venue location, and they've released over three dozen professionally recorded live albums of those shows. Now they're releasing a 20-track compilation of some of the best of those moments. It's a great looking collection (track listing after the jump) and to celebrate its release, Banana Stand is hosting a FREE day-long show at the Hawthorne Theatre on Sunday, June 10. This show will include the debut performance of Genders, which is a new band featuring members of Youth, who just broke up in the past couple weeks. Here's the lineup:
ALL-AGES Afternoon Show:Banana Stand has also just launched a modest Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the compilation's release. All that info's over here—and you can check out the video above as well. Donations can be tiny (a buck gets you a download of the comp), and a $125 donation gives bands a full day of professional quality recording at their venue/facility, which is a great deal. Banana Stand has been doing fine things for the Portland music scene, and this is a great opportunity to support them.
